Jerry, Jerry, Jerry...didn't you know it's not appropriate to approach sea turtles in their natural environs? Oh well--I can understand the "pull", and suppose given the benefits he rec'd, a few lapses in the domain of sea turtle regulations can be overlooked.

Great shot, BTW.

Looks like a Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)

They are predominantly herbivores, but do also eat some invertebrates such as jellyfish. Green Turtles are an endangered species.
